ISA is a third-party program provider affiliated with LCSC. It provides more structure and services than an exchange, and offers the most locations outside the U.S.—more than 60 schools in 30 countries. Although students are still enrolled at LCSC in a placeholder course, all costs are paid directly to ISA. The program selected must be semester-long to be eligible for financial aid. Minimum college cumulative GPA to apply ranges from 2.75 to 3.3, depending on the program.
Start by visiting the ISA website to decide which program(s) you are interested in. Compare cost, language offerings, course options, and anything else that will help you decide which program is the best fit.
